Optimize your return on investment
Building light shafts in truss roof systems is a straightforward process. To maximize the return of investment, in many cases, it is beneficial to choose horizontal combinations of 2 or 3 roof windows in one shaft. You will create an optimal interior daylight level and create a ’wow’ effect for your customers.
If the space calls for only one window, it is optimal to use wider, shorter sizes and position them close to the exterior wall line. This will achieve a more shallow light shaft and maximise the daylight introduced.
Children’s rooms are often the most polluted
Children’s bedrooms are often located on mid or upper levels starved of light and cross ventilation. Often kids’ rooms are the worst places to be for air pollution. As well as toxic particles from sources around the home, the many toys and electronic appliances found in most children’s rooms can also be responsible for potentially harmful emissions.
Air pollution and high CO2 levels can lead to problems like headaches, troubled sleep and fatigue through to difficulty concentrating. Poor indoor climate can be particularly hard on children because they are still growing, and they breathe faster than adults.
Natural daylight and ventilation are important factors in achieving a good indoor climate. Offer your customers healthy homes that keep them and their families healthy.
